Here & Now.
Things have been awfully quiet here on the blog, haven't they? Sorry about that. The past month or so has been busy and kind of stressful, to be honest. I'm not sure exactly what caused it, but the past month I have just been feeling uninspired and discontent with things. I think I did the wrong thing and kept dwelling on the things I can't change, instead of nipping those thoughts in the butt, so it kind of got the best of me. BUT after many long talks with my wise husband, he has set me straight! He always helps me to focus on the GOOD and not the bad. This is an example of my thought process lately:
I'm SO tired of living in Waikiki. I'm tired of living in this tiny studio that has a new problem every other week. I want a house, with a yard, with a garden. I'm tired of working 40 hours a week and my husband and I rarely having the same days off...
I'm so thankful to be living in HAWAII. I need to remember that we are still in the very first stages of building our life here. We will not be in Waikiki forever. We will be moving out of this studio in 4 months. I am so grateful that my husband and I were able to find full time, well paying jobs, after moving over here.
Really, life is good. I just got sidetracked a little bit.
The other night, my husband said to me "We need to get out and take a walk around Waikiki. Lets enjoy and remember the good things about it!" So we did. And it was fun! Although it might not be my favorite part of this Island, it is where we are right now, and I am really going to start focusing on the "here and now" parts of life, because really, that's all we've got!
What do you do to make sure you enjoy the "here and now" parts of life? I'd love some advice! =)
